WE ARE NO LONGER ACCEPTING SUBMISSIONS. THANK YOU! 

The Footlights Theatre (Falmouth, ME) is no longer accepting 10-minute one act submissions for our 1st “Seriously Funny” competition. The plays must be 10 minutes long with no more than 3 people in the cast, simple and minimal tech (i.e.; set, props, costumes, sound, and lighting), and it can be a drama or a comedy or both.

The eight “best” plays selected from the competition (by a panel of judges) will then be given a fully staged production in June 2022. One play of the eight will be voted “the best” by each audience member after each performance. The playwright with the most votes after the run of the show will receive a $500 cash prize following the final performance.

POSTPONED until June 2022... due to the pandemic, we are moving SERIOUSLY FUNNY to June, 2022. At this time, we do not feel comfortable using a cast of 8 people together on stage while covid cases continue to spike. We hope that June will provide some normalcy to our world and that events like this may continue. 

SERIOUSLY FUNNY 
The Footlights Theatre will present the best 10-minute one acts submitted to our 1st “Seriously Funny” competition (held Fall 2021).
